One's identity cannot modify the Old and New Testament. However, in Romans 14 you have to set aside your doubtful disputations or cultural preferences which have nothing to do with edifying or educating God's children. It is possible to be a religious Jew but not be a Semite: Most are probably Europeans. Philippians Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous , but for you it is safe. Philippians Beware of dogs , beware of evil workers , beware of the concision.
The mutilators took pride in extreme circumcision. For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit , and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. Phil Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: in the Ezekiel 33 version Christ named rhetoricians, singers and instrument players. The Pharisees specificially taught their own doctrine rather than teach the Word.
Philippians But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Paul was such a prideful Israelite and the sect of the Pharisees that he thought that killing Christians was doing God's will. Paul had to repent of his racism. It would not be wise to suggest that Paul still defends his wholly erroneous faith system as a Jew. After being saved by Grace and receiving The Book of the Covenant the Jews fell back into their past and future Sabaxianism: Paul uses this event to prove that the Jews were neither superior nor predestinated:.
The Jews denied that the Gentiles were "pure" enough to be baptized and insist that they be circumcised and keep the Law of Moses. No one has their sins remitted without Baptism. That is not a fact: Christ ordained the synagogue or Church of Christ the Rock in the wilderness. The first asssemblies were defined. The Synagogue for the godly Jews and Gentiles is the eternal pattern: it is in the words of everyone including the Campbells A School of Christ.
Worship is reading and musing the Word of God. In fact the "Jewish roots" profaned the Sabbath and got away with it because they had been abandoned to Sabazianism beyond redemption. After the resurrection--still hiding from their Jewish Roots--Jesus synagogued with the disciples two first days of the week in a row. Acts And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
If the Christians were worshipping like in the Torah just the law then why were the fearful of the Jews seeking the Messiah so that they could murder Him consistent with all sacrificial systems which began with the Sacrifice of Kings yearly, then the sacrifice of a surrogate and finally the sacrifice of animals along with infants.? Paul had to repent of a religion which gave him authority to murder believers. Qahal h kaw-hawl'; from ; assemblage usually concr. The qahal was a well established concept and was called an ekklesia in the Nazarean Codicil.

In English we translate the Greek ekklesia as church. So, whenever we see the word church in our Nazarean Codicil's, we should have in mind the concept of a qahal, a community or congregation. The Septuagint uses the word Ecclesia seventy times when it translates the Hebrew word: kve qahal could also be spelled Cahal , from which we get our English word call. It means to call together , to assemble , or gather together. The synagogue serves the same purpose for a community that the Temple served for the nation. Greg Killian. And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.
Miqra h mik-raw'; from ; something called out, i. And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law. Ne Qara h kaw-raw'; a prim. And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Urijah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchiah, and Hashum, and Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam.
And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; for he was above all the people; and when he opened it, all the people stood up : Ne And Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen , Amen , with lifting up their hands : and they bowed their heads , and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground. So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly , and gave the sense , and caused them to understand the reading.
Sekel h seh'-kel; or sekel say'-kel; from ; intelligence; by impl. International Standard Bible Encyclopedia. Thus these meetings, which at first were only held on Sabbaths and feast days , came also to be held on other days, and at the same hours with the services in the temple. The essential aim, however, of the synagogue was not prayer , but instruction in the Law for all classes of the people. Philo calls the synagogues " houses of instruction , where the philosophy of the fathers and all manner of virtues were taught ".
And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And after the reading of the law and the prophets , the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on. Till I come, give attendance to reading , to exhortation , to doctrine. By applying this terminology to the reading of his own epistles he not only ascribes the same authority to the apostolic word as to the Old Testament writings Homologia g hom-ol-og-ee'-ah; from the same as ; acknowledgment : - con- pro- fession, professed.
Of the unconverted Jews in Rome:. But even unto this day, when Moses is read , the vail is upon their heart. Whereby, when ye read , ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ Ep. And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.
I charge you by the Lord, that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren. Blessed is he that readeth , and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book , neither to look thereon. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the Torah till all is fulfilled.

The so called Torah five books defines the history of the Hebrew people and their utter rebellion against God. Matthew For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law , till all be fulfilled. Matthew Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
The kingdom of Chrst on the other hand was the Church of Christ which makes one dead to the Law. Even demanding circumcision would repudiate the work of Christ and put Messianic Jews back under the Covenant with Death. James makes the point that if one shows partiality they are guilty of all of the tenets of the Law of Moses. Anyone without baptism into Christ would would be Apistos or treacherous to Christ. That left them under the rules of the Law of Moses.
Matthew Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
The Second Advent of Christ Premillennial.
Matt And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matt Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:. Peter Prophets by Christ and prophecies made more certain. Mark as false teacher.
Gregory the Great. Matthew Now thus is faith; when a man believes in God the Lord of all, Who made the heavens and the earth and the seas and all that is in them; and He made Adam in His image; and He gave the Law to Moses; He sent of His Spirit upon the prophets ;. He sent moreover His Christ into the world. Furthermore that a man should believe in the resurrection of the dead; and should furthermore also believe in the sacrament of baptism.
This is the faith of the Church of God. And it is necessary that a man should separate himself from the observance of hours and Sabbaths and moons and seasons , and divinations and sorceries and Chaldaean arts and magic , from fornication and from festive music , from vain doctrines, which are instruments of the Evil One, from the blandishment of honeyed words, from blasphemy and from adultery.
And that a man should not bear false witness, and that a man should not speak with double tongue. These then are the works of the faith which is based on the true Stone which is Christ , on Whom the whole building is reared up. And so I ordain in all the congregations.

Was anyone called while circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? Let him not be circumcised. Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters. Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called.
It is part of a quotation from Amos 5 verse 26 where the Septuagint 's reading raiphan or rephan stands the Hebrew Chiun or Kewan.
